Assistant Dean, Advising & New Student Programming
Leslie moved from Puerto Rico when she was 8 years old. She is adamant about keeping her Latin roots alive. She, her husband Joe, and daughter Sydney, live in Arlington Heights (near Trader Joe’s!). “Every morning, I look forward to catching a glimpse of Boston from MIT. My favorite city so far is Rome, and my dream city to visit is Barcelona.” She is a big fan of beautiful architecture. Leslie earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from UMASS Lowell and her Masters degree in Higher Education Administration from Northeastern University. For pleasure, Leslie loves listening to opera, reading historical fiction and thrifting with Joe.
